I am running Windows XP post SP2, and have an nVidia GeForce FX 5200, with the latest driver for it off nVidia's website, the monitor is an Envision En-780. My problem is that all the video file playback is really washed out (it looks like one of the Scott brothers directed it ["The scene is tinged blue, it is sad! BE SAD!]).

Now how does one deal with the saturation or whatever else it could be on the video playback?

Other things I am willing to tinker with on my own, but I'd rather not royally screw myself over in the visual settings department.




I've got many character flaws, humility isn't one.

Assuming your monitor looks ok the rest of the time, it could be the program you use for video playback.
I have the same Video card, the drivers I have are version 6.1.7.7 from May 2004. I have no problems playing video in WMP or Winamp.

See I thought that too, but then I tried some other programs same deal. All of it washed out like someone upped the white saturation. And any games I am playing don't suffer. Neither does anything else BUT video play back. Cinematics in the game seem to be fine as well.

Admittedly if this is all I can say that's wrong with my comp then I have to be happy because it really isn't important.

See if there is a gamma setting for video playback in your display settings.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
